INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A new survey shows most drivers admit to having road rage.

AAA says eight out of 10 people admit to having aggressive driving behavior. People also admit to expressing anger and having road rage at least one time in the previous year.

The survey said they categorized road rage as following too closely, yelling at another driver, cutting drivers off or making angry gestures.

The survey also showed about 8 million drivers had extreme road rage and did things like bump or ram another car on purpose or got out of the car to confront another driver.

Young men seem to be the biggest culprits of road rage. Especially those ages 19 to 30.

They are also three times more likely than women to display that “extreme road rage.”
